LANSING, Mich.—The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) has announced that Sen. Jack Brandenburg has received their “Guardian of Small Business” award for his perfect voting records on small-business issues.
“I’m honored that such an esteemed organization such as NFIB has recognized my record of voting in favor of the backbone of Michigan’s economy – small businesses,” said Brandenburg, R-Harrison Township. “I take many things into consideration when casting my vote for the people of the 11th District, but the well-being of small business owners is one of the most paramount.”
Session Small Business Voting Record grades lawmakers on a scale of 0 to 100 percent, with 100 percent being a perfect small-business score. A score below 70 percent is considered failing. The voting record is based on a series of votes on issues deemed important to small businesses.
“Although the voting record does not reflect all elements considered by a lawmaker when voting, it is an important guide to evaluating their attitude toward small business,” said NFIB State Director Charles Owens.
